Spears is hearing from Hampton, Richmond, Old Dominion, Ball State, Virginia and Virginia Tech too.
"Virginia's defensive coordinator said he really likes me and he wants me to visit more. He wants to get to know me a whole lot better," he said. "Virginia Tech's coaches have said they're going to watch me this year."
Spears confirmed plans to camp at both Virginia and Virginia Tech this summer.
So, does Spears like anybody?
"I really like Virginia, Virginia Tech, Richmond and Delaware," he said. "It's cause all of them have unique programs. They mostly focus on you finishing college and they all love playing football."
